This program is designed to support working families who have children ages 5-12 who are not attending in-person school or have chosen to be fully virtual. This classroom is set up to support their distance-learning aligned with the individual school districts the children attend for Fall semester 2020.
Our school-age class is held in our main building in our front room that is about 1700 sq ft. It is divided to serve children ages 5-8 and 8-12 and has a maximum capacity of fifteen children. Full-time and part-time options are available and are subject to availability.
A team of two-to-three teachers supervise and educate this class. The teachers support each child's individual learning requirements and assist them with their virtual work. The academic curriculum is provided solely by the child's school district via recorded zoom meetings and electronic assignments. Teachers teach this curriculum on a parallel schedule to ensure children are ready to rejoin their school districts when in-person classes resume.
The cost for the program is $30 per child for each day of the week that is required. We develop a contracted schedule of days needed at the time of enrollment. Children will only attend on their contracted days, and tuition is due as a flat, weekly rate established at registration. We will not issue credits for days missed for any reason. Other fees include a non-refundable $75 registration fee that is due at the time of enrollment and a refundable $12 deposit for a keyfob to access the building.For full-time students, a $300 per child security deposit is also held for the duration of their enrollment and returned at the conclusion per our established deposit policy.
School-age children follow the general center schedule related to our established hours of operation and meal times. The academic curriculum is studied and supported between the hours of 9:00 am-11:30 pm. Lunch is from 11:45 am-12:30 pm. School-age children participate in outdoor time during the hours of 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm while our preschool population naps. On days of inclement weather, the children participate in quiet activities such as reading or resting, and teachers offer additional support for academics during this time. Snack is from 2:30 pm-3:00 pm. Between 3:00 pm - 5:45 pm, children participate in arts and crafts, STEM projects, music, activities of daily living, and can engage in free-choice play.
